The inner palm features specific proGrip treatment to ensure secure handlebar contact in slippery conditions. When temperatures drop further, wear the new L1 insulator glove underneath.
About Winter Gloves
Winter cycling gloves are designed to keep your hands warm, windproof gloves are especially good at this as they stop the winds chill from reaching your fingers. Many models incorporate a waterproof membrane to prevent the insulation layer getting wet, this is important as water carries the cold quickly. They are shaped so they're comfortable in the usual riding position and the fingers are usually pre-curved. If your riding position puts a lot of weight on your hands, choose gloves with padded palms, some even feature gel inserts for additional comfort and shock absorption. Alternatively, wear your summer cycling gloves underneath a slightly larger pair of insulated winter gloves.
About the Assos brand
Assos are one of the world's pioneers and specialists in producing high quality cycling clothes and accessories. They are located in a region of Switzerland that has maintained a long standing tradition in first class textile engineering. In the 1970's, Toni Maier-Moussa, founder and chairman of Assos accidently invented lycra cycling clothing, whilst trying to create the ultimate bicycle. During the wind tunnel tests of the first ever carbon-fibre bike, Toni inadvertently found that lycra downhill ski racing suits had much less drag than the woolen-knitted cycling clothes of the time. To this day Assos firmly believe in total product competence, delivering optimum function and comfort, by researching and making its cycling clothing and accessories from the very best materials.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Reading the 1st answer by willybob explains just what they are.
They function exactly the same as a wetsuit & your body temp regulates the temp of the water touching your skin.
So it's not strange that your hands get wet when taking them off - the reality is you are not aware they are quite as wet as they are - your hands remain warm despite being soaked.
I will not risk using these in cold weather.
I am infuriated by this because Assos should make this clear in their product data.
I agree that the wetsuit concept is great but I wouldn't have chose them knowing this - they take forever to dry & I don't like pulling on ice cold wet gloves before stepping out on a winter eve.
When I 1st wore these in the rain (light) it was above 10c & on both occasions removed them as I assumed my hands were sweating & therefor causing them to get wet.
Now that we have had some heavy rain in colder conditions (8c) I could feel cold water breaching the glove around the wrist & running down the palm & then from all over - within 2 miles of heavy rain my hands were soaked more than I have experienced in any other cycling glove.
I 'splashed out' on both the rain glove & the thermal liner - sadly I am 'splashing out' now by reverting to my £28 E***** waterproof glove that have been reliable in sub zero temps. (I only wanted to replace them because they have seen me through 3 very rainy seasons).
I had the Endura Gloves in size S and Assos those I have in XS.
